These rooms were built several years ago. The tenants had filed a case in the Supreme Court (SC) against the demolition notice. The matter was pending in the court for 7-8 years. 

When contacted, Pune Cantonment Board (PCB) assistant executive engineer Sukhdev Patil said, “We had issued a notice last month. But the owner and the tenants were hoping that the SC would pass a judgment in their favour. Even after issuing the notice, the owner did not comply with the order. So, we had to demolish the illegal rooms.”

PCB Chief Executive Officer DN Yadav said, “Today’s anti-encroachment drive was important. The tenants and the owner went to the SC to bring a stay on the demolition despite staying in an illegal building. The rooms have been demolished.”
